Brunt grateful to Baggies team-mates

The midfielder saw his tame penalty saved by Manuel Almunia but

goals from Peter Odemwingie, Gonzalo Jara and Jerome Thomas put the

Baggies three up, and they held on for a famous 3-2 win. Brunt, who

was involved in two of the Baggies’ goals, told the official club

website: “I was angry at myself for the penalty because I changed

my mind. When I put the ball down I was just going to smash it –

but I changed my mind at the last minute. “Everybody tells you to

never change your mind and that’s what I did so I was gutted

because I thought I had blown a chance for us. “But thankfully the

lads responded straight away and we just went from strength to

strength. If we hadn’t won I would have blamed myself for it.”
